How Often Does a Roof Need to Be Replaced?

May 05, 2020

How Often Does a Roof Need to Be Replaced?The roof of your home is a key structure that provides protection against the elements, contributes significantly to curb appeal, and plays a key role in the energy efficiency of your home. And—unfortunately—roofs don’t last forever. Many roofs need to be replaced every 20 to 25 years, but there are several factors that can influence when it’s time to replace your home’s roof.

The biggest factor that will determine when you need a new roof is what material your roofing is made of. Here’s a quick overview of the average roof lifespans by material:

  • Asphalt shingle – 20 years
  • Fiber cement shingle – 25 years
  • Slate, metal, or tile – 50+ years

Signs Your Home Needs Roof Replacement

Sometimes, damage from extreme temperatures, weather events like hailstorms, and falling or wind-blown debris can require you to replace your roof sooner than you may have expected. You may also want to consider investing in a new roof if you’d like to improve the energy efficiency of your home and boost its overall value. Here are a few signs that roof replacement may be a good idea:

  • Your monthly energy bills are steadily rising or inexplicably too high
  • You notice roof shingles that are cracked, buckling, or missing
  • You have moss growing on a portion of your roof
  • Your roof appears to be sagging
  • You find roof granules in your gutters

Not every homeowner with these problems requires a new roof. In some cases, a few repairs may be all that is necessary. Still, it’s important to promptly seek the opinion of a roofing professional if you notice any issues.
